Welcome to your monthly Pudgy recap! As promised, we’ll continue to provide monthly updates for penguins who may have been fishing in a cave. Here’s your February 2023 recap!
In February, we announced our retail and licensing partner, Retail Monster, to further develop our Pudgy Toys initiative. We also hosted an event at NFT Paris with DeGods, and continued to develop our soulbound infrastructure. In all, February was a month full of meeting The Huddle and developing our Toys! Let’s travel across the Pudgy Universe and look at everything we accomplished in February.
Retail Monster is a global brand that helps companies scale their IP and distribute it both in the physical goods world and the IP licensing world. With the goal of getting our upcoming Pudgy Penguins toy line on shelves all over the world and bringing your Penguins to life through other licensing opportunities, we're excited that Retail Monster will be joining us on this journey.
The first official Pudgy Penguins event in Europe was a huge success. We experienced a stunning view of the Alexandre III Bridge, Eiffel Tower, and Grand Palais from the rooftop of Le Flow, a large stationary boat with 3 floors located at Port des Invalides. With over 1,000 attendees, the atmosphere was truly special. We also want to extend a huge thank you to our co-hosts DeGods and sponsors LayerZero for organizing and sponsoring this event!
In addition to our “Midnight in Paris” event, Luca spoke on a panel with FrankDegods, Bryan from LayerZero, Chris Lyons from a16z, Fanfaron from 77-bit, and Harri Thomas from PROOF.
We partnered with Hologram Labs to bring 3D models of each unique Pudgy Penguin to life. With this, Pudgy Penguins holders will be able to jump into video calls, vtube, create Tiktok, YouTube, and Twitch content, and do awesome things as their Penguins.
Sotheby's Soulbound Token
We’re proud to be the issuer of and partake in one of the first Soulbound Tokens (SBT) that have been issued by a major company. This soulbound token has been added to the penguPins collection and will commemorate the Pudgy Penguins auction on Sotheby's that concluded on November 30, 2022.
In February, community meetups were curated and held at various locations worldwide, including:
It is incredible to see people get together time and time again, and we encourage more community members to organize IRL events and connect with The Huddle around the world!
This wraps up our monthly recap blog for February. 2023 has started off great with important partnerships and amazing community initiatives. We believe Pudgy Penguins is set for success with the very powerful combination of product development and incredible community.
As we continue on this journey of building the fastest growing IP brand in Web3, we are grateful that you are all on this ride with us. The Pudgy Penguins are different from the rest, and we will build, we will innovate, and we will excel.
